Description jeff 2000-01-09 03:16:42 UTC
The RedHat specific version of lilo truncates command lines passed from
lilo, potentially eliminating essential kernel initializations. The stock
lilo 0.21 does not do this. I think the "LONG EBDA" option is repsonsible
-- only 0x4e characters are copied when this is enabled.
